Remutaka Cycle Trail is truly one of New Zealand’s Great Rides and while it can be independently explored, if you feel like you'd like someone to show you the way and help you to have the best experience, Green Jersey is for you. They can provide bespoke tour options, luxury supported and guided tours depending on the level of comfort and the pace you want to take. Green Jersey will sort out your safety, bag transfer, accommodation and provisions to free you up to enjoy the ride. 

The trail can be completed in 1-3 days, but Green Jersey recommend adding in another day or two to allow you to explore Wairarapa more fully. A visit to the wine village of Martinborough comes highly recommend; take a visit to the coast to take in Ngawi, a quaint fishing village; and don't miss a visit to Cést Cheese, a speciality cheese store in the village of Featherston.
